Five terror suspects including Mohamed Milhan, alias Abu Seelan, who were arrested in Jeddah in connection with the Easter Sunday attacks, have been brought back to Sri Lanka by the CID this morning, police said.
They said the special CID team had left for Saudi Arabia on June 11 to bring back the suspects who were in Saudi police custody. The suspects were detained under the CID custody for further questioning.
Initial police investigations revealed that Milhan was responsible for thea killing of two police constables at a checkpoint in Vavunathivu in Batticaloa on November 30, 2018. (Chaturanga Samarawickrama)
